Telugu actress Lakshmi Manchu came out in support of actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is the prime accused in her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case, as she wrote a long post asking people to show restrain. While a few actors like Taapsee Pannu tweeted in Lakshmi’s support, Sushant’s niece Mallika Singh slammed the actress.
Lakshmi had posted, “I watched the complete interview with Rhea Chakraborty and Rajdeep Sardesai. I thought a lot about if I should respond or not. I see so many people so silent because the media had made a monster out of a girl. I don’t know the truth and I want to know the truth and I hope the truth will come out in the most honest way. I have complete trust in the judicial system and all the agencies that are involved in bringing justice to Sushant. But until then can we restrain ourselves from being evil and cruel and lynching of a person and her entire family without knowing the facts. I can only the pain of the entire family is going through with these so-called media trials. If something like this happened to me I would want my colleagues to stand up for me at the ones that know me to say back off hang on leave her alone and I ask of you to do the same back off, hang on leave her alone until the entire truth is officially released. I am pained by what we have become we have become. How are we being authentic if we don’t speak out heart when we have a voice to lend. I’m standing up for a my colleague.”
After Lakshmi released this statement,
Mallika took a dig at her writing, “I’m surprised that right now, some people are suddenly remembering what “pain of a family” and “standing up for a colleague” means.”
The CBI has already grilled Rhea for four consecutive days.
